To celebrate the occasion, we have made one of our most popular Digital Mysteries apps (usually a paid app on the App Store) into a FREE activity. It’s an interactive, collaborative task for pairs or small groups to work on together and helps 8-11 year olds learn about animal habitats and food chains in a fun way.
Here’s a screenshot of the activity in action. This is after a dedicated Reading Stage and the point where students can use fun things like sticky tapes, groups and notes to start sorting the information cards out:
To download the free task, simply:
- Search ‘Thinking Kit App’ on the App Store or click here then download the FREE app.
- Go to Educator or Learner then New Session then Download, and enter the code 1789.
